If you have a feeling deep down in your guy that you KNOW you can't breathe without building a business. Or without providing a quality of life for your family that was better than you knew. You can't stand wasting one more day sitting around being a spectator to life -- then this is for you.
This is spot on. I've been feeling a lot of pain lately with the way I've acted and my results. I can't help but want to change things in my life and for my family. So I'm in!

It's not your circumstances in life that determine your outcomes. It's what you do with what happens to you -- that's what determines your destiny. If you want to make a living -- don't sign up. If you want to design a life -- step up.

If you have a feeling deep down in your guy that you KNOW you can't breathe without building a business. Or without providing a quality of life for your family that was better than you knew. You can't stand wasting one more day sitting around being a spectator to life -- then this is for you.
You're so right in so many ways. There was no doubt I wanted in, but wanted to make sure it would be something for me being the "wantrepreneur" who hasn't fully committed.

I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I joined in last night and will be looking forward to getting started. My work schedule consumes me on the days I work so hopefully the calls will sometimes land on days I'm not working.

I was lurking the forum since a couple of months. Finally, I have decided today to join the community and to enroll in the Steve program both at the same time. I'm glad to be in!

F*ck me.

I have been on stage all day the last two days and all of sudden I look at how many people signed up... so much for the 30 I said I was going to cap it at...

I'm honored and humbled by all of you guys who stepped up and gave me the opportunity to play with your brains. All I can promise you is as long as you do the work ahead -- I'll do everything in my power to get you where you want to be.

I've already been diving into most people's "homework" and starting to see some key patterns with the group. The best part is I've got some stuff that will blow your mind (and get you over some of the challenges).

Here's the deal: I do intend on turning this into a real business so I *do* actually have to cap this.

After the trial period I'll be bumping it up to 297/month. The ones who are in now, I'll give you the opportunity to be grandfathered in -- after you've received the results your after and had your freaking mind blown you'll be able to continue for the 197 price.

I'll leave it open for another day or two (I'm catching a flight to Miami in the morning for some stuff down there) but that'll give us the chance to catch any stragglers... but clearly I didn't charge enough haha :) -- I'm fine with that though. Like I said I want this available to everyone who's hungry.

I'm grateful for you. I'm excited to serve. And I can't wait to see everyone knock it out of the park this year!

Okay. I'm in as well.

After seeing who's in already I believe this will be the best investment since I got personal coaching for one year from Andy and Mike when they were doing a JV for Brendon Burchard's High-Performance Academy about three years ago. (These are the guys who build the platform Steve is using).

Really looking forward to taking my life to the next level.

Since it's just a pilot group it's only 30 people. Discord or Slack would be alright however they are terrible for layered comments. When I do a big launch in a month or two and put a few hundred people into the program -- Facebook is the only way to go.

It's not the greatest of course, but that's why the membership site is where all of the content is.

You'll get the schedule and everything via email. All the trainings will be inside the membership area. So really all the facebook group is for is basic announcements, questions on the material, daily check-ins, etc.
Sounds like you’ve already done a lot of research.

I had a Facebook group for people who bought my course. I found it distracting logging in, and that was the general consensus of others too.

I switched us to a Xenforo forum and prefer that it’s my platform, and ad free.

Engagement went down as it’s less “message-y”, but I can find and link to threads like I can in TFLF. I can re-categorise and re-organise as I go along.

I’m putting my monthly trainings into a section of the forum, and may eventually put my course into the forum too.

For me it seems a better platform to be on if my membership grows substantially, even if it’s a bit clunkier on mobile.

I believe Facebook have a Workplace version of Facebook groups. Might be worth checking out?

Love this post.

So many lessons in how and why this marketplace ad panned out the way it has...

Okay, I'm going to be selfish and do more than just endorse this - I'm enrolled.

Too good to pass up.
Oh good God. You two as well? You're making me feel I'm missing out now.


Would love to see @Lex DeVille 's breakdown on how @Kung Fu Steve filled this up so fast when business and life coaches are crawling out of the woodwork. I think it's fairly obvious and a case of "Show, don't tell" with the scarcity, social proof, and adding value to those who are on the fence.

Good work @Kung Fu Steve. A great example of how to launch a good product and let it sell itself.



EDIT: @eliquid and @Ungodly as well?

Easy!

Step 1: Meet Steve
Step 2: Scramble to find your wallet when he offers you anything

:)

(Okay, maybe throw in a dash of borrowed credibility from "big buddy" as well)

People who are thinking about advertising here at Fastlane through the Marketplace...

As you can see when you take an investment into the forum and build relationships, selling is very easy.

I'm sure Steve is making a fortune here.

But this fortune isn't because of his great copy.

It's because he's spent a lot of time here at the forum and invested in relationships and a track record.

He isn't a DRIVE-BY advertiser.

While DRIVE-BY advertising is accepted here (and might even work) the ultimate "conversion" occurs through community contribution and people feeling like they know you.

Contribute to the forum.
Become a personality.
Build relationships.

And then you might be able to turn $49 into $10,000.

Carry on...

Are you aware of what's holding you back?

What would life look like if you became aware and then took massive action?

Why is it filling up so fast? Couldn't say. Don't know much about him ..

.. but I've heard really great things, and that was before this thread.

I can't quite believe it, but I'm in too now.

I'm not really into coaching courses or groups, but I can't ignore @LightHouse reaching out, all the people I respect who've already signed up, and the incredible notes from @GlobalWealth, @Vigilante, and even @MJ DeMarco.

Get 30 days access to someone who's done over 2,000 presentations on this stuff for only $197 ?!?

What's the best that could happen?

I've been contemplating losing weight for a long time, but when I opened my wallet and put my money where my mouth was the investment was a reminder and a demonstration of my resolve. Add to that an accountability group of peers and you may find this was the best $200 you ever spent.

Last night I was just impressed with how well @Kung Fu Steve was doing with his launch and how he's going to help so many people. I didn't think it was for me because I'm pretty happy with where I'm at and how I'm chipping away.

"Do I really want to spend time on this?" was my thinking this morning.

Then it dawned on me how much time I spent last month fecking about on Instagram trying to get my head round the platform.

"What if I'd spent that time fecking about with my head?"

Bye-Bye Instagram.
